on blogging.

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

one of my favorite lines ever is... gina, i miss your posts. i think it's time you blogged. and while i feel like this blog is such a selfish outlet of mine, i honor those comments more than anything because they keep me going. they encourage me to express my voice, and that is one of the greatest gifts anyone could possibly give.

i saw this quote late last week on a cup a jo and absolutely loved the truth in it.

 "there’s something sacred about reading a blog post on someone else’s site. it’s like visiting a friend’s house for a quick meal 'round the breakfast table. it’s personal - you’re in their space, and the environment is uniquely suited for idea exchange and uninterrupted conversation. in many ways, we should be treating our blogs like our breakfast tables. be welcoming and gracious when you host, and kind and respectful when visiting." ~trent walton

and, while i'm on the topic, have i ever gushed over my blogger crush on mackin' ink? i mean... this woman has it all. i beyond adore her. i once sent her some fan {e}mail and she responded! to me! like personally! {i swear, if i ever made it in this blogging world, and got an ounce of fan mail i'd write you back in a heartbeat. i promise promise. because sometimes there's no better feeling than when someone is your biggest fan}.

anyhow, she said something so candidly truthful that i think of quite often.

"blogging's so funny, isn't it? better than any cocktail party for meeting like-minded friends. pretty amazing."

now i say cheers to that!
